Norwalk Officers Arrest Man in Their Midst

A Stamford man who was yelling, cursing and creating a disturbance early Saturday at Norwalk Police Headquarters, according to a police report, wasn't there to be arrested. But that soon changed.

Eric MacDuff, 45, butted in front of someone else when he came into the station at about 2 a.m., police said. He stood inches from the glass, yelling and cursing at the desk sergeant. "You told me she was bonded out," he is alleged to have said. "You lied. She's still in there."

Police said he was also slurring his words and using racially offensive phrases. He appeared to offend the three or four other people in the lobby. MacDuff was asked to leave several times. He said he had taken a poll outside and was authorized to use the racially offensive phrases, the police report said. He pointed at Sgt. Carlos Cotto and said, "I want him. I want the big one."

Cotto and another officer escorted MacDuff outside, where he fell to the ground. Although he said he was leaving, he didn't go far. Officers told MacDuff he would be arrested and he ran. They tackled him across the street. MacDuff was charged with breach of peace, criminal trespass and interfering with an officer. Bond was set at $475.
